Amanda & Seth | Craft Farms Wedding in Gulf Shores, AL

From the moment I met Amanda & Seth, I knew they would be a great couple to work with. There’s a few things that I envision when I think about working my my “exactly type” of couple. They’re madly in love, relaxed, fun loving people.. and that’s exactly Amanda & Seth! You can see from their portraits that they were naturals in front of the camera with such beautiful chemistry!

Their wedding took place at Craft Farms in Gulf Shores and it was quite an adventure with ominous clouds and high wind from an approaching squall line. But as fate would have it, it didn’t rain a drop until we were leaving the venue! Some of my favorite moments include the spinning flower girl trio and Amanda’s happy tears! Also, can we talk about her shoes?! I’m always impressed that these brides dance the evening away in their sky high heels. I kicked my shoes off about 15 minutes into my reception so I definitely encourage reception flats if you’re like me. #oldflatlover

I’m going to start mentioning a tip or two from every wedding as a resource for future couples! A lot of couples start to panic when the forecast shows rain. While we can’t control mother nature, there’s a few thing that can help! If rain is in your forecast, grab a bunch of clear umbrellas for some fun outdoors portraits! Make sure they’re clear (to let in light) and get enough for each member of your wedding party. Definitely have a backup plan for your ceremony site. And lastly, take a few moments to be upset but then choose to have the best time ever regardless of the weather! You’ve put a lot of time, energy, money into this day so enjoy it with your friends, family, and new husband or wife!
